CNBC’s Jim CramerInvestors were warned Monday that it is not wise to sell stocks during thin trading in the morning hours before market opens.

The selling of these Nasdaq names takes place between 4 a.m. to 4:30 a.m. It’s frightening. Cramer stated on “Squawk on the Street.”It’s either a machine, or an idiot. Because who would want to sell without real buyers?
